Criminals have got cybercrime down to a fine art following auction attack

The art industry is the latest industry to fall victim to malicious cybercrime following auction house Christie’s website being hacked, potentially shutting out some bidders on $850m worth of art work going up for bid this week.

Criminals have got cybercrime down to a fine art, with auction house Christie’s being the latest organisation to fall victim to a malicious attack.

In today’s threat landscape, the stakes have never been higher. Hackers are employing ever more sophisticated tactics in the pursuit of lucrative returns, and no industry is untouchable.

Many of these attacks, at their root, come down to some sort of compromised identity. Organisations must take a multi-layered approach to security. Having strong visibility into who can access what and when, across their entire ecosystem, is crucial to minimise the risk of a breach occurring.
